We stayed here for four days while testing out the RV before going on a 6 month adventure. Since this park is full during the winter season, we stayed at one site (A-5) for 3 nights and at another site (E-9) for the fourth night. The first site was only an estimated 1400' from a busy elevated interstate and was very noisy. The further back in the park you go, the quieter it becomes. E loop was quite nice. This is a municipal park and offers a great dog park, boating access, a target range and lots of space for picnicking. The loops were each in a tight circle with some pads but mostly dirt and grass. The sewer hookups are located close to the road unfortunately, so you have to keep your rig close, too. There are a few trees and bushes for privacy. We would come here again but would definitely want to stay in the back part of the park.

Price reflects TT membership. Yes, the entrance to this park is wedged between two stone walls, pretty stupid. But we loved the park. It is beautiful with huge oak trees throughout. Our site also had a concrete pad to park next to, and it was very level. Flagler Beach is very low key, and the Bulow Plantation State Park is right next store to explore. It is convenient to I-95 without hearing traffic noise. The only negative for us was a weak Verizon signal, so not a strong Internet. We will definitely be back.

Price reflects Thousand Trails membership. This was our third attempt at a TT member park, and what a nice difference from the first two! People at the office are very friendly, there was no front gate locking us out. They gave us a site but had no problem when we changed it. Tall oak trees provide plenty of shade, and though we couldn't get satellite TV, they do offer cable TV for a small fee. Our site was so level we didn't bother putting the leveling jacks down for a two day stay. We had no problem driving in a 36' motorhome, but could see how longer rigs have a tight squeeze around some of the trees. They offer free Wi-Fi at the office; our Verizon had a weak signal. Easy to find just off I-95, just turn at the Waffle House. We would definitely come back here.

Rate reflects TT membership. This was our second experience with a TT park; the first was horrible, so this seemed great by comparison! We really don't like the self-service way they do things, we think it is tough to have to drive a big rig around a park to pick out a site. We picked a spot in C loop out in the open, not very scenic but we wanted tv satellite reception. We paid an extra $3/day for 50 amp, not a big deal. The Verizon signal was very strong, so we had internet. Walking trails are nice, and the pools and lake are pretty. Roads are mostly gravel, need a little smoothing out. As previously reported the seasonal people have the nicest sites. All in all we might come back here but it would be nice to have a better way to pick out your site.

This park was our first taste of a Thousand Trails park, and wasn't good. We were given a free membership with the purchase of our used motor home. Upon arriving at the park, you have to stop at the front gate and call a ranger via a radio. He comes out and gives you your paperwork and with no other guidance sets you free to drive around and pick out your site. The roads are very rough, some gravel and a lot of dirt, so incredibly dusty. The first site we found turned out not to have sewer; it would have been nice if their map reflected that fact. Our next site (A-23) did have sewer and we stayed there, but it was very uneven. Most of the area around our site was so unlevel it was mostly unusable. Our Verizon signal wasn't strong enough to carry a wi-fi connection. The lake and so-called beach was littered with feathers and feces from the Canada Geese. The pool was closed for the season (on Sept. 6th). We walked around later and found that the C Loop looks better than A, more level and all sites had sewer hookups, we think. Of course there is only 30 amp here for electricity. The whole feel of the place is of a run down park that could be beautiful with some TLC and unfortunately lots of money. We would never come here again.

Price reflects the upcharge for 50 amp. I'm guessing that's also why we were put in a tight lineup with other rigs when all over the park there were open spots. We don't like being so close to our neighbors that our picnic table is practically under their slide. I had to use their laundry and thought that 3 washing machines were not enough for a park this size. The wifi signal was strong, a good thing since Verizon is very weak here. This park is very well kept and is expensive given that they have all the kids' amenities but on an 88 degree day in early September the pool was closed! We will find another park to go to next year as we head south.

Mayfair is a great campground, with large sites and lots of grassy areas, trees and waterfront sites. We camped here for a week around Labor Day weekend and the campground was never that full. It was perfect for us as we had a family reunion and everyone was able to gather around on our site on the west side of the campground, which has a huge grassy area behind the site. The Wi-Fi worked great most of the time. Our only complaint about this campground would be the location of the trash and recycling area at one end of the property. We would definitely come here again.

I have to echo the remarks of others who think this park is the best. We traveled full time for 6 months last summer and 3 months this summer and this is probably the best park overall for our needs. Most private RV parks pack you in on top of one another, but Turning Stone has lots of space between sites, as well as big grassy areas and trees galore. We were in the back of the park in the 500 numbered loop. We used our strong 4G Verizon signal for internet access and our satellite tv worked well between the trees (not a deal killer, since they offer cable tv anyway). The hiking trails were a nice surprise, and the individual garbage cans for each site were another. It was a very pleasant 3 day stay for us, and we will definitely be back.

We were here last year and came back due to family in the area. This is an awesome county park with beautiful trees, hills and hiking trails. This year the Verizon signal was strong enough to give us phone and internet service. It was a little muddy because they have had lots of rain. We were in the "Only Motor homes and large 5th Wheels" sites near the entrance to the campground. No sewer hookups means it is a short visit for us, but we will be back. People who work here are very nice, and at $25/night it is a good value.

Campground is neatly kept, with the exception of the garbage bins, which were overflowing. The lake needs to be cleaned up; it is full of algae. There are lots of activities for kids, some are free, some not. Our rate reflects a KOA discount and only 2 adults. Our son and family of four paid $50 for a tent site, which we found expensive. We also had to pay $5 each for two adults to join us for dinner one night at our site, something I have a problem with. There should be some way to differentiate between guests who are going to use the amenities and those who are simply visiting an RV site. The sewer, water and electric hookups all worked well, as did the Internet. The sites are a little close, but we did have some nice grassy areas and trees nearby. We came here due to its proximity to Rochester where we have family. We may try another campground next year.

The park itself deserves a 9 or 10 rating. It is spacious and beautiful. The campground has its good and bad points. Most sites are very nicely spaced with trees between sites. Some sites are much more level and/or larger than others. The park does not have sewer hookups, and the water spigots are spaced along the road, so you don't have your own water hookup. There is very poor cell phone service at the lake and no Internet provided. If you want a beautiful spot to rough camp this is the place, but if you want more services it might be good for a couple of days. We would only come back two days at a time.

This is primarily a seasonal park, very few sites for transients. As others have said, the owner is a very nice, helpful guy. For some reason, even though we made our reservations months earlier, he had me back out into the highway (not a safe move) then back into a space next to the office building out by the road. We were three feet from the building, so no view there. On the other side we had a nice lawn. Site was uneven and the wifi faded in and out. The utilities all worked fine. We walked to a nearby winery; otherwise not much to do.

We were here for a weekend and the park was full with lots of seasonal local people and lots of kids, but everyone was well behaved and it was quiet at night. We were put in site 426, which is on a corner by the road, and they have planted grasses and other plants to help disguise the roadway. However our neighbor's picnic table concrete pad was practically under our rig, much too close. We enjoyed biking to local produce stands and could bike to the ferry terminal to Put-In-Bay. The wi-fi signal was no good at our site, and the Verizon signal went up and down.

Price reflects Good Sam rate. This campground is very nice! The owner is on site and is one of the few privately owned park owners/managers who seem to actually care that you are happy. He lead us to our site, then showed us how to hook up our Direct tv receiver to his dish, since the tall trees prevent your own satellite dish from receiving a signal. The wi-fi is exceptionally strong. The sites are spaced far apart, again unusual for a private campground with full services. We would definitely come back here again.

The location of this campground is very nice, right on the water, and they have plenty of land; it's too bad they didn't use it to spread out the campsites. We were parked awning to awning, way too close for us. True, the view of the water is very nice, but to see it you have to be at the edge of your site. Wi-Fi is available at a price and the signal was not strong. Our Verizon signal faded in and out, too. Not much going on in Cedarville. We would not come back again, primarily because of the sites being too close.
